Multipurpose beauty gel for skin and hair
Hey guys! Welcome to my 1st blog. I have chosen aloe vera gel as my first blog because aloe vera is truly a boon to everyone on earth! Yes, and I am not even exaggerating. It has so many uses and benefits that I feel it is too good to be true. Its wonderful healing and softening properties make it one of the ‘must have’ plant in any house. It also makes a perfect indoor plant as it emits oxygen even at night and is an excellent formaldehyde filter, a substance common in many cleaning as well as personal care products.

In this blog I am going to give a review on WOW Aloe Vera Gel. I personally like WOW products and this brand is getting increasingly popular. They are also usually free of any artificial additives and other harmful or synthetic chemicals.
Why buy aloe vera gel instead of using it directly from the plant?
While we can get the purest form of aloe vera from the plant, sometimes due to convenience we prefer to get a store bought gel. We can use the gel anytime of the day or night without having to go out to our backyard and take the gel out of the leaf. Also, before applying the aloe vera gel from the leaf, we must always make sure to completely let the yellow liquid drip from the leaf as it is a skin irritant. A gel has an added shelf life too. If you are a person, who catches cold or sore throat when you use the aloe vera directly on your scalp, switching to gel is a good option.
Now lets get on to my review. Please be informed that this is not a sponsored review.
WOW Aloe Vera Gel has 99% of aloe vera with no added parabens, silicone, mineral oil, colour or synthetic fragrance. It has a natural plant-based thickener called Xanthan gum which aids in boosting moisture. It also contains citric acid which helps to lighten spots and scars. The preservatives used are Sodium Benzoate and Potassium Sorbate. CAUTION: Please take care not to use this product together with Vitamin C as Sodium Benzoate when combined with Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) forms Benzene, a known carcinogen.
Price: I got my Aloe Vera Gel from Nykaa for Rs.270 for 130ml (plus extra 20ml). However, the MRP shown on the bottle is Rs299. To get this product click on

I have been using aloe vera gel since 2 years. This gel definitely makes your skin much softer. I noticed that my skin got a good glow and brightness after about 1 week of use. I saw a significant reduction of my acne scars as well. As for my curly hair, I use it as a hair gel to get a light hold for my curls. It eases out frizz ad softens it as well. It is also very soothing to apply on my skin after being exposed to sun. I usually apply this gel at night and leave it overnight. The gels gets absorbed easily and it has not given me any break outs.
